Pluto Bigger Than Thought

Everyone's favorite underdog, Pluto, is actually larger than previously expected. NASA's New Horizons spaceship is making its way toward the former ninth planet and has already discovered that it is about 1,473 miles in diameter. It also detected that Pluto contains a polar ice cap and has ionized nitrogen steaming from it. The spacecraft will make its closest flyby on Tuesday morning.
